Hellebore Blooms

Hellebore blooms are toxic when ingested, so exercise caution and keep children and pets away.

A decade ago, Hellebores were difficult to find in a garden center. Today, however, they are among the most sought-after perennials because of their early bloom, long-lasting flowers, shade tolerance, and handsome foliage. Their range of colors, both subtle and dramatic, are specular. They emerge quietly in late winter to remind us of wonderful things ahead.

Commonly known as Hellebore, the genus Helleborus consists of approximately 20 species of herbaceous or evergreen perennial flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae. This plant family includes well-known plants such as delphinium, anemone, buttercup, and aquilegia. Most of the common hellebores are clump-forming, low growing evergreens with toothed, palmate foliage.
